Name: Western Primary School
Location: Harrogate
Headteacher: Mr Tim Broad

At Western, we aim to develop kind, ambitious, curious, confident and successful young people who are excited about their futures.

Western’s ethos is centered around it’s children and community. Together, this community has built and maintains, an open, nurturing and inclusive environment where children can take advantage of exciting and engaging learning experiences in an atmosphere of trust, belonging and happiness.

The Western community is one which embraces innovation and risk-taking in order to be at the forefront of the evolving educational landscape.

Our community recognises and respects that all children are different and, whilst we understand the importance of achievement in the core curriculum subjects, we also recognise excellence in expressive and performing arts, sport and the use of technology as well as the importance of healthy minds and bodies.
